A company is offering to pay someone $1300 to watch 13 horror movies in October. In other news, the first Black woman officiated an NFL football game, college students are chanting “F- Joe Biden” at football games, and New York is to ban the sale of gas cars by 2035.
As Halloween approaches, this company will offer one lucky individual $1300 to watch 13 horror movies during the month of October.
The offer is being made by Finance Buzz who is seeking someone to serve as a Horror Movie Heart Rate Analyst, CNN reported. The assignment includes watching 13 of the scariest movies ever made while monitoring their heartbeat using a Fitbit, according to a news release by the company.
“In honor of the upcoming spooky season, we at FinanceBuzz are dying to know whether or not high-budget horror movies deliver stronger scares than low-budget ones,” the news release said.
Maia Chaka made history on Sunday as the first Black woman to officiate an NFL football game. She served as a line judge on Sunday in the contest between the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets in Charlotte, North Carolina. Chaka is now the third on-field female official in the NFL, CNN reported.
An odd trend among college students is spreading across the country, with at least four instances occurring over the weekend of September 4 during college football games. Chants broke out among college students in the audience and were captured on video at Coastal Carolina University, Virginia Tech, Auburn University, and Texas A&M. This past weekend marked the second-straight week of such chants occurring at college football games, Fox reported.

New York will now become the second US state to ban the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles by the year 2035. Last week, Governor Kathy Hochul signed a bill amending the state’s environmental conservation law. The new law will require 100 percent of all in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks to have zero emissions by 2035, CBS reported. The governor’s office said it estimates the ban will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the state by over 35 percent.
Last year, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill that banned the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger cars and trucks beginning in 2035.
